  1. Bridge 2020 displays incorrect metadata

    Bridge shows incorrect metadata for images exported from InDesign.

    In the attached screenshot, metadata for dimensions (in inches) and resolution shown in Bridge is wrong. When opened in Photoshop, they open at the correct size and resolution (350dpi).

  2. Error writing Metadata to files on network drives

    In Bridge, When trying to write metadata to files on my network drives I get "There was an error writing metadata to (file name)”. I have no problem writing metadata to files on my internal hard drive or any hard drive that is directly attached to my computer. I have found 1 other person that is having the same issue. Thank you for checking into this.

  3. Time format ver. Ver 9.0.3.279x64

    When editing "ursprungligt datum och tid" (original date and time) the time format is not in correspondance with the regional settings in the control panel. in ver. 9.0.3.279x64 installed on computer OP. In the enclosed file you can compare with Ver 8.0.0.262x64 installed on computer FUJ935 where the field can be edited directly in the correct date format. It seemes like the improvement on this field to make it possible to make other adjustments has caused a bug

  4. Cannot cursor up or down in Metadata Description panel

    This behavior has changed - in the description panel, I can only use right/left arrows to move the cursor, where I used to be able to move cursor up or down as well.

  5. Can't type in new Capture Time

    When I want to change a Capture Time, I can select and place my pointer to type in a new date/time, but that does not work. I must instead scroll through the calendar to find and select the date I want. That is very slow. I think it must be a bug that the date/time field appears to be editable, but is not.
    I scan photos and so do lots or date changing. Too slow the way it it now.

  6. Adding Keywords to Illustrator files corrupts them

    When adding keywords to Illustrator (eps) files, it is no longer possible to open them in Illustrator. The error message is: "Can't open the illustration. The illustration contains an illegal operand. Offending operator: {epsmetadatastream}. Context: ƒøÔ."
    The files that weren't updated with keywords all still open normally.

    There is a work-around to place the corrupted files into an empty Illustrator document, but that is not ideal when dealing with many files.

  7. Template Error

    We apply Bridge templates ( replace Metadata) to assets delivered by Freelance photographers. The photographers have already added there own Creator metadata. Our Template usually leaves the IPTC Creator fields untouched, by having those fields unchecked in the template. (screenshot 1)
    However we now need to replace the "Creator Email" in the Metadata to reflect our contact as the Publisher. To do this I checked the Creator Email field in the Template and entered our email , other Creator fields remain unchecked (screenshot 2).
    However in Bridge 2018/2019 applying this adjusted template results in all the Creator Metadata being replaced,…

  10. Metadata Sidebar

    The descriptor column in the new version of Bridge is too wide, causing the data column to be too narrow to be usable on the smaller screen of a laptop. Can you make those columns resize-able, or adjust them in a future update?

  11. @ bridge

    In Bridge 2019, no metadata field you can write the @ symbol using the keyboard. Using ASCII code yes. The same happens with the € symbol.

  12. 'Date Created' updates made in Bridge do not show from Windows Explorer or Google Photos

    I have updated the 'date created' for a group of photos using Bridge,. These photos now show the new and correct 'date created' when viewing them in Bridge.

    However, in Windows 10 File Explorer, the 'date created' still shows the wrong date. Also if I load the photos to Google Photos, the 'date created' still shows the wrong date. Google and Windows Explorer both show the same wrong date, not showing the updates made in Bridge.
